Reappointment of SEAS Dean Eduardo Glandt
Having received the report of the Dean Review Committee, President Amy Gutmann and Provost Ronald Daniels announced last week that they will recommend to the Trustees at their next full meeting on November 4, the reappointment of Dr. Eduardo Glandt as Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
“As the report of the Review Committee makes clear, Dean Glandt’s accomplishments during his first six years in office underscore both the quality of his leadership and the ability to achieve the ambitious goals that he and the faculty have set for themselves. The committee was particularly impressed by the positive changes that have occurred during his tenure: the size of the faculty has increased, the number of women faculty has doubled, and the school has recruited outstanding junior and senior faculty who are sure to solidify the school’s excellence in such fields as biomedical engineering, nanotechnology and information science,” President Gutmann and Provost Daniels noted.
“Research continues to thrive, Levine Hall has been constructed and Skirkanich Hall is underway. Student quality, both at the graduate and undergraduate level, has improved. The bottom line—in the committee’s opinion and ours—is that Dean Glandt has established an enviable track record. He has the confidence of the faculty, the students, his peers, and important external constituencies of the school, and he has demonstrated the ability to articulate a vision of the future of the school to both those within and without the University.”
“We are confident that under Dean Glandt’s leadership, the School of Engineering and Applied Science will continue to thrive. We are delighted that he is willing to accept a second term, and we look forward to working with him in the years ahead to ensure that the school continues its impressive progress,” President Gutmann concluded.
